Parksville, BC

Trevor Hirschfield is considered 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.

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. He has also been named the Sport BC Athlete of the Year twice. Last year, he became one of the first low-point players to be named an IPC Athlete of the Month.

As a former marketing student at Kwantlen College, Hirschfield is interested in new media and fashion trends.
