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 (

FALL 2020 Tryout and Team Placement Information

Due to the COVID-19 State and County health restrictions, we will not be able to conduct in-person tryouts during our normal May-June window.  For those players from other clubs that would like to join Alpine Strikers prior to in-person tryouts, Norcal has set a transfer/tryout window from June 6 – July 20.  We will be accepting registration for transfer players during that window.   Players that are new to competitive club soccer or who have recently moved to the area may register at any time prior to the start of the fall season.  Players will be placed into an age group to receive our comprehensive online training until it is safe to return to the field.  Once we have a Return to Play date, we will schedule our in-person player evaluations for new players.  After you register, our Registrar and/or Technical Director will reach out to you with further information regarding placement into an age group.

2013/2014 age group players that would like to join a team for the fall can register using the link below and we will place them on teams based on school, neighborhood and friend requests.  No in-person tryouts will be required.  The teams will be re-formed by level of play prior to the Spring 2021 season.
