TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Vigo Youth Football League found a new home along with some new plans.
After eviction in January 2013, the league's been looking for a new place for the league, that has between 30 and 32 teams each year.
Hundreds of local kids will now play football at a field currently being remodeled. It's located at the back of the Terre Town Baseball Fields on Boston Avenue.
The league was under some scrutiny earlier this year after their eviction. The concerns of a money trail and completed background checks were both addressed in the changes the league made.
An election put several new people on the 19 member board. New by-laws better state how registration money will be collected, especially for those who can't pay in full during sign-ups.
As for the background checks, they'll continue as they have for several years. Every coach and team volunteer receives a full background check from more than one agency. This year, a third unaffiliated person will join the committee to review those background checks.
The league already has big plans for their new home, and according to the Board President, they're putting the past behind them.
