Lee’s Summit native Kyle Oberweather has joined the Central Methodist University athletic department as the head strength and conditioning coach for the Eagles’ 14-sport athletics program.
Oberweather comes to CMU from the University of Missouri where he designed and implemented programs for women’s volleyball and men’s golf. He also assisted with football, baseball, and track and field.
“I am very excited to join the Central Methodist family,” Oberweather said. “The family oriented atmosphere was something I knew I wanted to be a part of as soon as I stepped on campus.”
Prior to his work at the University of Missouri, Oberweather served as the head strength and conditioning coach at Lincoln University in Jefferson City. At Lincoln, he created and executed programs for football, men’s and women’s basketball and softball.
He also served as a graduate assistant at William Woods University, where he assisted with all athletic teams and devised programs for track and field.
Oberweather got his start in the athletic performance profession in 2008 as a student-intern with the University of Missouri athletic program.
Oberweather graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in health sciences, and later earned his master’s degree there in health education and promotion.
In his free time, Oberweather enjoys spending time in the outdoors, hunting and fishing. Oberweather and his fiancé, Laurie reside in Columbia.
