New Manuals for ESO Division A2 Teams
While our B and C division coaches manuals change annually, the Elementary Science Olympiad (A2) manual only changes every few years. Well, this is one of those years. All ESO teams will need to pay the $35 registration fee for 2014 tournaments in order to receive a copy of the new manual. It will be the official manual for all 3 ESO tournaments in Alabama - West Alabama, JHS, and Auburn.
