Tim Trevaskis joined North Melbourne in 1923, and was quick to establish himself as an important senior player. He was a member that year of the VFA party which travelled to the Western Australian goldfields to engage in a three match 'Test' series against the GFA (which was won 2-1).

When North Melbourne was admitted to the VFL, Trevaskis, who played for most of his career as a rover or forward, was a member of the club's inaugural league team against Geelong. He went on to play a total of 64 VFL games and kick 26 goals between 1925 and 1929. In his final league season he helped a VFL representative team to a 17.16 (118) to 15.10 (100) victory over New South Wales in Sydney. After retiring as a player, Trevaskis coached North's seconds for a time.
