The Malvern Lacrosse Club would like to share this news to all the lacrosse community and extend our grief and condolences to Tash and his family…
Alan was a friend and a fierce competitor who always had a smile and great story to share.
He will be sorely missed

The lacrosse world has lost a shining light and a lion of the sport.
Alan Lewer passed away a day after suffering a cardiac arrest Sunday morning while coaching the Victorian Men’s team. He leaves behind his loving wife Tash, best friend and son Jett, his daughters Tess and Ella, four brothers (Mark, Brendon, Tony and John), a large extended family and a sport that he loved. He was 48 years old and had played the sport he loved for at least the last 40. He has played, coached and impacted lacrosse at every level, across Australia and the world.
The Native Americans who gave us this beautiful game refer to lacrosse as the “medicine game” because it helps the healing process.
Let’s start the healing process off together.
Alan would not have wanted it any other way.
