Born in Arenys de Mar, Barcelona, Catalonia, Alsina only played regional football during his entire career, representing CF Arenys de Mar, UE Rubí, UE Vilassar de Mar, CF Vidreres, CF Sils, Arbúcies CF and UE Llagostera. He retired with the latter in 1996 at the age of 29, due to a knee injury.
Alsina was the manager during the club's impressive run, which consisted of six promotions in eight seasons. On 5 February 2013, he was replaced by Lluís Carrillo, after lacking the license to coach in Segunda División B, and was immediately named assistant and director of football.
On 6 June 2014, Alsina moved to neighbouring Girona FC along with Óscar Álvarez and Carrillo, after agreeing to a three-year deal. On 1 July, however, he left the club and subsequently returned to Llagostera.
On 28 July 2015, Alsina was finally appointed at the helm of the main squad in Segunda División, after acquiring the license needed. His first professional match in charge occurred on 22 August, a 2–0 home loss against CA Osasuna, and he remained in charge for the remainder of the campaign, which ended in relegation.
