RUNNING

Hello and Welcome to EPS Running

 

I am a Level 4  middle and distance coach. 

.

The athletes I work with vary - developing juniors with elite aspirations or requiring assitance in running improvement for other sports to adult athletes hoping to improve their times, rehabilitate from injury or take on new challenges in their running. 

With all of the athletes I coach my focus is always  technique and improvement gained from running efficiently.

Frances Lipscombe, Head Coach and Run program manager of Benson's EPS. 

 

 

Below is a note from the parent of a young hockey player who had been plagued by a hamstring injury and sought the assistance of EPS in preventing futher injury trouble through technique improvement.

.

"Olivia has been selected as a field player for the Victorian Primary School Sports Association hockey team to compete in Newcastle in August, and to thank you both for the fantastic work you did with her as part of the rehabilitation of her hamstring. Olivia is part of a team of 14, 13 field players and one goalie. Naturally she is very happy and we are very proud of her.

.

We are very grateful for the technical guidance and moral support you gave Olivia last year, she has worked extremely hard and is very appreciative of the 'Team Livvi' that has helped her get to this level."  Olivia is back for ongoing assistance to get her through her next hockey season after "nagging" her mum to get in touch with Frances again!

.

Junior development is a particular interest of mine.

  

I enjoy coaching juniors and watching them improve and derive pleasure from their achievements.  In addition to EPS Running  junior athletes, I work with Tony Benson and Barb Augustin in the Sport Specialist program at Maribyrnong Senior College coaching the cross country squad.   When coaching juniors I am aware that at least one of these athletes could one day be an elite athlete or even an Olympian and I coach with that long term goal in mind.

.

Coaching senior athletes who join EPS Running is also rewarding.  Adults athletes are dedicated and goal driven, they want to beat a PB, improve their technique,  take on a new challenge or all of the afore mentioned.   Marathoners  to  track  athletes and everything in between are an important part of the EPS Running squad.

.

So what does EPS Running offer?  Junior and Senior runners alike who join our program are coached on an individual basis.   Each athlete is provided with a written personalised program and offered individualised coaching at any session they attend.   We do not have large numbers at our training sessions so you are guaranteed special attention from your coach.  Whether you like it or not!
