Mary-Anne Head Coach Head Coach

My name is Mary-Anne Bittner and I am proud and honoured to be the Head 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 2 grandchildren.  I am very passionate about the role I play as a coach and look forward to working with each and every one of you.

Many people know him as Mr.Murray. During the days you can find him at MBE teaching grade 2 and P.E, here we know him as Coach Kyle. Kyle wears many different hats around town and has been a volleyball, basketball, and baseball coach and has now stepped onto the swim deck. He has a personal background in triathlon and has competed in races for the last 7 years, he even represented Team Canada in 2017! 

Reece Meropoulis-Valdez Assistant Coach Assistant Coach

Hi! I’m coach Reece! I’m a lifeguard at the Repsol Place pool. Some of my favorite things to do are snowboarding, photography and of course swimming! I chose to be a coach because I want kids to have the same fun experience as I did when I was in swim club. I love watching the kids progress in something they are passionate about!
