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 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, Trevor still believes that his career highlight has yet to happen. He’s eager and firmly committed to leading Team Canada back to the top of the wheelchair rugby world and his sights are firmly set on winning gold at the 2020 Paralympic Games.
