Shortly after graduation, she returned to Pelham where she and Mark Finegan began Lower Hudson Volleyball Association in 2007. Sloane was also an assistant coach for Pelham Varsity Volleyball from 2007-2012, where she helped lead her team to the State Championship in 2011 and 2012.

This will be my third year coaching for LHVA. My coaching experience does not go past LHVA, but my passion and excitement for the sport has tremendously helped me become the coach I am today. I've been playing volleyball for over 10 years, indoors, on the grass, and in the sand. I enjoy the sport, and I love being able to share this experience.
