Iron Woman Tiarrn Raymond will be visiting the Brunswick Surf Life Saving Club to help motivate kids to their full potential according to club coach Paul Davis.

Tiarrn came from a small surf club in Cairns and is  proving that anything is possible, having made it into the top 15 of the national Iron Women competition.

Paul trained with and coached Tiarrn up in Cairns before she made the move to Burleigh Heads. Her former Cairns club is similar to Brunswick as they are both small, family clubs.

Paul said he is passionate about educating kids on ocean survival and wants to generate more participation in Brunswick Surf Life Saving Nippers.

Tiarrn will be at the club on October 22, 9–11am.

This is an opportunity for kids to explore Nippers.
