Meet the S&C Team

Kate Foeman
Head S&C Coach

Originally from Colorado, Kate is an incredibly accomplished player, coach, and trainer. After winning a USAV National Championship with her club volleyball team, Kate went on to play NCAA Division I Volleyball at the University of Denver as a left-handed opposite. There she began to develop a passion for training and injury prevention after six reconstructive joint surgeries. After completing her degree at Denver, Kate earned a scholarship from Durham University in the United Kingdom to play in both the British University League and National Volleyball League.

As a coach, Kate has been with Northeast since its inception in 2018, coaching and mentoring athletes of all levels from U12-U17. Prior to NEVBC, Kate coached at Colorado Volleyball Association for two years at the U17 and U18 levels, preparing many of her players for college volleyball opportunities. Kate also held an assistant coaching role for Team Durham women’s volleyball after sustaining a serious shoulder injury, where she then worked with Northeast Director Garrett Minyard to coach their team to two National Championships.

Kate is ACSM certified and is working towards her CSCS certification this fall. She has trained our NEVBC Club & Open teams for the past two seasons here at NEVBC, in addition to private training sessions and leading Strength, Speed, and Conditioning classes.

"I am thrilled for the amazing opportunity to lead the new Strength & Conditioning program at Northeast Volleyball Club. I have been a part of NEVBC since Day One in 2018, and I am excited to help our athletes reach their physical performance goals. Volleyball is an incredibly physical sport, and my goal as Director is to give our athletes the workouts and tools needed to jump higher, run faster, and move efficiently as they play the game. Injury prevention and pre-habilitation will also be a huge part of our training, so our athletes can keep playing the sport they love!”

- Kate Oakes, Director of Northeast Strength & Conditioning

Tim Corcoran, Jr.
Assistant S&C Coach


Tim Corcoran Jr. is a Strength and Conditioning Coach from Ridgefield, CT who has worked with 100's of athletes from volleyball to swimming to mountain biking. He was a 4-time All American Swimmer, two-time Junior National Finalist and National Champion in the 100 and 200 Butterfly events setting both state and regional records.


Tim has been lucky enough to train multiple national champions and Olympic trialists in swimming. In 2021, he was personally invited to the Olympic Trials by a

long-time client of his who came home from Georgetown University to prepare for the Trials with him. During those 5 months, he made a second cut and set another state record. At Olympic Trials, he placed 16th as a 19 year old! The best part was that we did this all out of my garage with limited equipment.

From 2011-2020, Tim owned and operated his own fitness business at Four Seasons Racquet Club, where Cat and Garret Minyard began their journey with Northeast Volleyball Club. For three years after closing his doors, Tim focused on a few private clients and his position at the Country Club of Fairfield.

Tim loves connecting with his athletes and preparing them for competition,  both physically and mentally. Tim is thrilled for the opportunity to join the NEVBC team and get back to his passion working with athletes.
