Mary-Anne Bittner Developmental Coach

My name is Mary-Anne Bittner and I am the Developmental Coach of the Edson Orcas.  As a youth I was a competitive swimmer for over 10 years.  I then turned swimming the sport into coaching the sport.  I have been coaching with the Edson Orcas since 2017.  Off deck I work full time with a non profit organization supporting adults with disabilties.  I have been there since 2004.  I am also an active member of the Kinette Club of Edson.  I am married, have 4 children and 3 grandchildren.  I beleive coaching the kids is 80% in the water and 20% out of the water.  I am very passionate about the role I play as a coach and look forward to working with each and every one of you.  

Hailee Johnston Assistant Coach
Chrystal Johnston Competitive Coach

Meet coach Chrystal. She has been an assistant coach for the Orcas since 2018. Although Chrystal was not a competitive swimmer herself, she fell in love with the sport when 2 of her kids joined the club 6 years ago. Chrystal enjoys spending time outside hiking, camping and playing all kinds of sports and of course spending time with her family. When she’s not at the pool she’s working as a registered massage therapist. Her favorite thing about being a coach is watching the kids improve their skills and helping achieve their goals…and of course showing them how much fun swimming can be.
