Biography

Trevor Hirschfield is the co-captain of Team Canada and is considered to be one of the best low-point players in the world. He was originally introduced to wheelchair rugby thanks to the sport’s co-inventor, Duncan Campbell, who was his recreation therapist at the G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Center in Vancouver, BC.

Hirschfield made the National Team back in 2006 and became the co-captain in 2012. On the court, he is known for his intelligence and his ability to “play up” and guard athletes with a higher point value. These talents have earned him several World Championship All-Star awards, as well as become the first low-point player to ever be named IPC Athlete of the Month.

Despite having achieved much success within the sport, “Trev” still believes that his career highlight has yet to happen. The four-time Paralympian continues to lead by example and redefining who can be a multi-sport athlete; Hirschfield has recently competed in the 2021 World Para Surfing Championships adding surfing to his impressive resume.
