VCS to Field HS Girls Soccer, Hires Guihama as Head Coach
Sun Valley, Calif. – After a two-year hiatus, high school girls soccer is returning to Village Christian, and VCS has hired new head coach Arvey Guihama to lead the way, the school has announced.
“I want to take Village Christian back to where it was in 2001 when it won the [Alpha League] championship,” said Guihama, who was a Los Angeles Galaxy trial player in 2009. “I have the passion to make sure VCS girls soccer is a staple again.”
The United States Air Force veteran brings 32 years of playing experience and 14 years of club coaching and development to the Crusaders, who last fielded a girls soccer team during the 2016-2017 season.
Over the last two seasons, VCS featured a co-ed roster.
A scholarship player at the University of Delaware, Guihama joined the USAF during his college years and played while stationed at RAF Lakenheath in the United Kingdom.
The decorated high school player also has a daughter in kindergarten at VCS and will host a players’ meeting on Monday, September 9 at lunch in the Athletics Field House.
First step, he said, is getting to know the student-athletes and discussing their goals. From there, his experience developing players will take center stage.
“Show me hustle, and I’ll show you what you need to take your game to the next level,” Guihama said.
Said co-Athletic Director Jarod Ebenhack: “Coach Guihama is the perfect combination of experience and personality to relate with our girls and build this program from the ground up. I am really excited that our girls are going to have the opportunity to learn from him and grow this next season.”
