A Rise Pole Vault membership is an all encompassing pole vaulting experience. We are working towards our goal of creating the first and only indoor pole vault specific training center in the Chicagoland area. This is your opportunity to receive effective and structured training with expert coaches year round in order to maximize your vaulting potential. You could be the part of something that will change Chicagoland pole vaulting forever. Our membership package includes, but is not limited to, the following…

  • Pole vault instruction 2x per week

  • Pole vault specific lifting & sprinting 2x per week (same days as vault days)

  • Written workouts and guidance on off days.

  • Coaching in offseason competitions.

    • Offseason competitions are optional and will require nominal meet fees that will not be covered in the monthly tuition fees.

    • Coaches will not be able to commit to every offseason meet an athlete wants to jump in but will be present at as many as possible.

  • Use of poles during practice, RISE offseason meets, and option to “request to borrow” during your high school season.

  • Expert advice and help navigating through the college recruitment process.

  • Rise Athletic Club T-shirt

  • Rise Athletic Club competition singlet (if the athlete will be competing)

  • Access to virtual coaching platform (coming soon)

  • We are always adding membership benefits as opportunities arise.
