2016 4th Annual Cotton Classic Jr.


Coaches, I would like thank you for participating in the 4th edition of our tournament.  This will be a four team Junior High (grades 6-9) only tournament to be held Saturday, August 20th.  The format will be pool play with bracket play following.  Each team will play the other three teams in the pool.   Each match in pool play will consist of two sets to 25 (win by 2, no cap).  There will be no third set if teams split in pool play.   Seeding will be determined by the number of sets won and lost.  


Each team is guaranteed four matches each.

Pool Play  –(9:00A-2:00P)        

Team 1 – Tuscaloosa     Christian        

Team 2 – Brooklane        

Team 3 – Tabernacle            

Team 4 – New Life Academy               


After pool play has concluded, teams will be seeded for the bracket play.  The bracket play will be a single elimination tournament.   The top seed will play the fourth seed and the second seed will play the third seed.  If there is a tie, then the total points allowed between the teams that are tied will be added and the team with the lowest total points allowed will be the winner of the tie breaker.

For the bracket play, the format will be 2 out of 3 sets in each match.  First two sets to 25 (win by two, no cap) and third set to 15 (win by two, no cap).

The tournament will begin at 9 am on Saturday morning and we should conclude at approximately 6 pm on Saturday.

First and Second place awards as well as 5 all tournament and 1 MVP will be given  at the conclusion of the day.
