Sophia Loiola has been around the sport of volleyball for as long as she can remember. Learning all there is to know about volleyball from her father Jose Loiola, she has a large range of perspective and understanding of the sport on both the indoor side and the beach side. Playing and winning two CIF Division 1, Regional Finals, and State Championships for Redondo Union High School under the guidance and leadership of Tommy Chaffins, coach Sophia knows what it takes to play and compete in a tight competitive environment, while always remembering to have fun and be the best teammate on and off the court. She followed up with her volleyball career playing for both ECC and CSUS, and USA Beach Volleyball. Coach Sophia also has assisted Jose Loiola with his beach professional teams, and now the USA Beach National Team.
