Player

Youth

Sloan graduated from Oakland Mills High School. He then attended Catawba College where he was a 1986 Second Team and a 1985 and 1987 First Team NAIA All American soccer player.[1][2][3] He holds the record for career goals with 56 and was inducted into the Catawba Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010.[4]

Professional

In June 1988, the Chicago Sting selected Sloan in the first round of the Major Indoor Soccer League draft.[5] When the Sting folded a few weeks later, the Cleveland Force received the rights to Sloan, but did not sign him.[6] By that time, Sloan was playing for the Maryland Bays of the American Soccer League.[7] On October 19, 1988, Sloan signed with the Dayton Dynamo of the American Indoor Soccer Association.[8] He returned to the Bays for the 1989 summer season.[9] In 1990, the ASL merged with the Western Soccer League to form the American Professional Soccer League. Sloan and his team mates took the APSL's inaugural championship.[10][11][12] In October 1991, he returned to the indoor game, this time with the Baltimore Blast of the Major Soccer League.[13] On February 25, 1992, Sloan signed with the Tampa Bay Rowdies.[14][15] In October 1992, he rejoined the Dayton Dynamo, now playing in the National Professional Soccer League.[16] Sloan played two seasons with the Dynamo. In September 1994, the Dynamo traded Sloan and Joe Mallia to the Baltimore Spirit in exchange for Rob Ukrop and Clark Brisson. In 1995, he played for the Delaware Wizards of the USISL. In 1996, he played a single season with the Carolina Dynamo.[17] In September 1996, Sloan signed with the Sacramento Knights late in the Continental Indoor Soccer League season as the team struggled with injuries. That fall, he moved to the Philadelphia KiXX of the NPSL. He remained with the KiXX until 2007. In addition to playing for the KiXX, he spent the 1998 and 1999 outdoor summer seasons with the Staten Island Vipers of the USISL. In July 2007, the New Jersey Ironmen selected Sloan in the Major Indoor Soccer League draft. He spent a season with the Ironmen as a player-assistant coach.
