In 1976, Hartman turned professional with the New Jersey Americans of the American Soccer League. He led the league in saves.[1] That fall, he began his coaching career as head coach of the Father Judge High School soccer team, a position he held until 1980. In 2006, Father Judge High School inducted Hartman into its Hall of Honor.[2] He did not play professionally again until 1978 when he signed with the Philadelphia Fever of the Major Indoor Soccer League. He spent three seasons with the Fever. In 1984, Hartman became the assistant coach to Lew Meehl at Philadelphia Textile. In 1993, both Meehl and Hartman moved to Drexel University.
