The ACBA runs a basketball league for lawyers and paralegals who are members and associate members of the association. Teams compete in two divisions based on their basketball experience and skills. Approximately 18-20 teams, made up of 10 players, participate each year. Games are played on Sunday and Monday nights at St. Edmund’s Academy in Squirrel Hill. Each team is scheduled to play 10 regular season games and at least one playoff game. The season begins in the middle of January and runs through the middle of April. Membership in the league is by team, but interested individuals will be placed on a team. The cost per team is $650, which includes the regular season and playoff games, as well as t-shirts. Members and associate members interested in participating in the league should contact league commissioner Scott Millhouse at email@example.com or 412-553-7063.
The ACBA ice hockey team is comprised primarily of practicing attorneys in Allegheny County. The team started its first season in January 2006 and plays year round. The team competes in the A and B leagues at Southpointe, Iceoplex Arena. Games are usually played on Thursday through Sunday nights. Anyone with experience playing ice hockey who’s interested should contact co-captains Kirk B. Burkley of the Bernstein Law Firm, P.C., at firstname.lastname@example.org or Paul Cordaro of Campbell & Levine at email@example.com. The team is always looking for new players. The team competes at an advanced skill level, but with enough interest would be able to field multiple teams at different levels of expertise. Depending on the number of players on the team, it typically costs about $50 to play for the season.
