Currently, GetVertical Pole Vault only holds practices in Milwaukee as we lost our sub-lease in Chicago.  We are actively looking for a new partner in the northern Chicago suburbs to allow us to return to providing great opportunities to that region.

 No matter which practice you are attending please note that: 

  • Practices are long, please bring water and food to stay hydrated and energized.

  • Utilization of borrowed poles assumes responsibility for all damages.

  • Practices are subject to cancellation based on weather, please subscribe to updates to receive updates.
