Penn A.C. will be hosting the 7th Annual Independence Day College Expo on Sunday, July 3rd in Philadelphia, PA. The event will take place on the last day of the Independence Day Regatta, and will run from 10 am until 2 pm.
This event provides the opportunity for rising Seniors to meet college coaches and discuss opportunities about future collegiate careers. As per NCAA rules, any athlete attending this event must be a rising Senior.
Last year, the event attracted athletes competing in the regatta, as well as athletes who traveled to Philadelphia especially for the event. We are expecting upwards of 300 athletes to be in attendance this year.
We will be expecting coaches from 50+ Women’s and Men’s collegiate programs at the Expo. Coaches or representatives from Lightweight, Heavyweight, Varsity and Club programs will be in attendance.
Penn A.C. will be hosting the event at the Robert M. Gillin Boathouse, which sits at the 1000 meter mark of the Schuylkill River’s race course. We will have two large air-conditioned rooms upstairs for coaches and athletes.
The Expo is free for all coaches and athletes, but you must register to attend through Regatta Central by June 15, 2016. Registering for the event allows us to compile a list of coaches and athletes who will be in attendance. Coaches’ contact information will also be included in a handout that will be given to all athletes attending the event. Following the event, coaches will receive a handout including contact information for all athletes who attended the Expo as well.

We look forward to seeing you in July!
