About the Durham Sports Commission

The DSC is the proud host the Champion Durham Classic. With so much young talent in the City of Champions, it was past time for a high school basketball invitational to take place in the community. The Durham Sports Commission is a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to create economic and social impact by leading the community’s efforts to attract, support, and promote youth, amateur, collegiate, and professional sporting and recreational events.   

The vision of the DSC is to engage the Durham community in supporting and promoting the sports spirit that exists both historically and presently, by increasing the capacity of local sporting events to host events with strong participation rates, and by working with national event owners to recruit sporting events that provide positive community impact. We’re confident that the Champion Durham Classic will do just that.
