Houston, Texas – Covenant House Texas(CHT) will present the Meet the Players Media Day on Wednesday, June 5, 2019. The event, which will be held on the CHT campus, will introduce the new basketball team members.
During the event, Covenant House staff and media will have an opportunity to interview the team ahead of the new season, which begins on June 11. New uniforms will also be unveiled. Special guests include emcee Cornelius Blackshear, Rory Coleman, and Larry “The Chatta Box” Hale from KTSU.
The event allows CHT youth to experience the process and the atmosphere of an NCAA college basketball media day. The basketball team was formed in April to give the youth an opportunity to participate in organized sports. Practice is held twice a week, although the team is still looking for a home gym. This season, the games will be held at the Quillian Center on the Westchase campus of First Methodist Church.
“Our goal is to show a positive image of Covenant House and give our young adults an opportunity to play organize basketball and take this positive experience with them for many years to come!” says Coach and CHT staff member, Ron Armstrong.
