Super Saturday 2020

Super Saturday 2020 Cancelled

We have had to cancel Super Saturday since the venue, The Pennsylvania College of Health Sciences, will be closed through March 30th because of concerns surrounding the spread of the coronavirus.

PA College of Health Sciences is committed to helping us reschedule at a later date, perhaps in the fall. Refunds will be issued.
