The Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Basketball Tournament has been a valued tradition in Salem since 1981. Every year, the Rotary Club of Salem and the Salem Civic Center, in cooperation with the ODAC, plan and host this premier NCAA Division III tournament. The event showcases many of the best true student athletes in the NCAA. Hundreds of visitors come to enjoy a weekend of basketball and experience the hospitality offered by the City of Salem.
The ODAC Basketball Tournament enables the Club to raise funds that benefit worthy non-profit organizations and community groups. All the proceeds from the ODAC Basketball Tournament support community service projects. The Rotary Club of Salem is honored to work with the ODAC and the Salem Civic Center to support fine organizations that improve the quality of life in our region.
