Fun Fact:
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 G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Center. Trevor 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 a Sport BC Athlete of the Year award. As a marketing student at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Trevor is interested in new media and fashion trends. He has gained a loyal Instagram (@thirsch10) following for his “alternative” biographies of his teammates. Trevor’s sense of humour was also on display in the lead-up to the London 2012 Paralympic Games, when he starred with teammate Travis Murao in the blog “Wheelchair Rugby Talk With Trev N’ Trav.”
