Alpine Strikers FC is a competitive youth soccer club serving the greater Atherton, Menlo Park, Portola Valley, and Woodside communities. We have over 700 players in the club, playing on teams ranging from U8 to U19, at all levels of competition including the National Premier League (NPL), Norcal Premier, and Central Coast Soccer League (CCSL).

Formal ASFC team tryouts are held in late May-June of each year.  If you are new to competitive club soccer (for example, currently playing AYSO) or have moved from outside the area and would like to join a team for the Spring season, your child can be evaluated at open practices held each November in combination with existing team practices.  Roster openings vary from team to team and placement is at the discretion of the coaches.  If you would like to transfer from another competitive club to Alpine Strikers outside of the May-June tryout window, please contact our technical director Gino Pucillo (
