Murray Prowse

Murray P

I started my journey with archery in 2014 and hopefully it's not one that will end soon. I'm currently the Vice President at River Glade Archers,  a range captain and a coach. 

My background is Engineering, from building and installing plant and machinery through to managing Projects. This has given me the skills to successfully build good working relationships with multiple stakeholders and the ability to find solutions to situations as  they come up.

I look forward to supporting all our archers from club day shooters through to our International competitors and building a sustainable, vibrant sport.

 Hi, I’m Mykel and I currently live in Auckland after growing up in Tauranga. I shoot competitively and can often be found training and coaching at Auckland Archery Club.

My specialty lies in Business Management as my main job. I have been a retail manager of multiple stores over the last couple years. This has allowed me to develop skills for leadership and communication. I aim to use these skills to help improve Archery in New Zealand by bridging archers and the organisation together.
