Total Athletics Hires Coach for New Junior Hockey Club

HYANNIS – The new athletics organization on Cape Cod will put a junior hockey team together as they hope to open up a multi-million dollar sports and training complex in Hyannis.

Total Athletics Cape Cod is a business venture being spearheaded by former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike Sherman. They plan to build a complex in Independence Park with a target opening date of 2018.

The facility would feature a full-size ice rink, an outdoor field for football, baseball, lacrosse and soccer and an indoor field house with a track and small turf field.

The TA Seahawks will begin play in the Eastern Hockey League next season. The EHL is a junior hockey league and serves as a feeder to college hockey programs. Most of the players in the league that move on to the collegiate level sign on with D-II and D-III programs.

This week, Total Athletics announced Plymouth native Bill Zaniboni as their head coach. Zaniboni won three state championships playing for Catholic Memorial High School and went on to play both collegiate and minor league hockey.  

He has been the head coach of the Wisconsin Dells Junior Hockey team for the past five years.

“Bill is a Head Coach and General Manager that TACC ownership has a great respect for,” said Sherman. “His reputation as a player development coach is well known…We are very excited to get Bill and his family to Cape Cod and begin building our Seahawks organization.”

“My family and I had a very rewarding experience with the Ducks organization as well as the Wisconsin Dells community, Although the ownership, players, and fans were great to us, we felt it was time to get closer to family, and TACC presented that opportunity with the Seahawks,” Zaniboni said.
