Originally from Tsawwassen, BC, Brendan Guraliuk was introduced to field hockey by his mother. He immediately fell in love with the game, playing and training out of Winskill Park in Delta, BC. He made his international debut as a junior division when he played at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires.
In 2018, he also debuted in his first international senior match on home soil against China. A current player for UBC Hockey Club and one of the next generation of Canada’s men’s field hockey players, 2020 was Guraliuk’s first full year as a member of the Men’s Senior National Team.
