Alvarado trained with the team for two days in Mexico before traveling with the squad for a three-match tour through Oklahoma. The squad played friendly matches against Northern Oklahoma, Oral Roberts and Tulsa.

She helped the team qualify for the 2016 FIFA U20 Women's World Cup and was the youngest member to represent Mexico in the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada. Alvarado was the starting goalkeeper for Mexico in the 2014 U17 FIFA Women's World Cup and 2014 CONCACAF U17 World Cup Qualifiers and was part of the first team ever to win a CONCACAF tournament for Mexico Women's Soccer.
