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 General Manager Gino Pucillo.

Spring 2021 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, need a release from the DOC from their current club so they can transfer to our club. 

Players that are new to competitive club soccer or who have recently moved to the area may register at any time in the link below.  Players will be placed on a team for socially distanced in-person training. Players and coaches must wear face masks. We are now able to conduct in-person tryouts. These tryouts will be structured differently from past tryouts. Players on each team will go through exercises and all coaches in the age group will evaluate players on each team. Players will not be able to move to a different team during tryouts. Players need to stay on their team to avoid mixing people. Coaches will then move players according to these tryouts to make official teams for the spring season. After you register, our Club Registrar and/or General Manager 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 spring 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 once we are in the Orange tier when we are allowed to have in-person tryouts.
