The Competitive Cauldron Training and Spreadsheet


The Competitive Cauldron is a simple system helping you to objectively track and rank your players practice performance.  The result is players are more bought into their role and more competitive in practices.

  • The training will help you to design and implement the cauldron within your program.
  • The spreadsheet will track each players win% and rank throughout the season!
  • With the purchase of the course you a file for every team within your program. If an Athletic Department or Club wishes to purchase additional files please email me at for pricing. 


Does your team culture struggle with a lack of competitiveness? 

  • Reserves don't buy in to their role
  • Players are afraid to compete
  • We struggle to stay engaged 
  • Players and parents have unrealistic view of their ability
  • Practices have low energy
  • Players don’t feel they have to earn playing time

I spent over a decade trying to motivate players every practice, while dealing with complaints about playing time because individuals felt they deserved a bigger role.

Over the last 3 years the competitive cauldron has helped transform over 50 programs at the collegiate, high school, and youth levels in sports like basketball, hockey, soccer, football, and volleyball.

All you need to do is:

  1. Watch the Training
  2. Set Up Your Spreadsheet
  3. Start Tracking!

Since 2017, I have been supporting coaches, from High School to the NCAA Division 1 Level, through my consulting services and mentorship program. 

Over the last 5 years I developed the Competitive Cauldron Spreadsheet for my own teams and helped over 50 coaches in basketball, football, soccer, volleyball, and hockey implement it within their program. The results have been nothing short of remarkable!

Before starting TOC Culture Consulting, I spent over a decade coaching in Ireland, Lithuania, and America at the high school, college, and professional levels. And before I started coaching, I played basketball at the University of South Carolina.

JP does a fantastic job walking you through a great program. I implemented the Cauldron with my team last season and still find the training valuable, always picking up new things to add with the details he provides. The Cauldron will change the way your team practices for the better the minute you start to use it. Thanks so much for your help JP!

The course, The Competive Cauldron was great. It really explained reasons to use The Competive Cauldron, how to implement it and how it can help your team. JP did an outstanding job explaining everything. Having examples of how it looks and works made it so easy to understand and begin implementing!! This is an outstanding tool that I am excited to start using and introduce to our staff and players. Thank you JP for sharing this with coaches to help them bring out the best in their athletes.

I found this course to be very helpful for infusing more competitiveness into your team and in particular into your practice environment. Unlike many courses I have seen that focus on one or more aspects of team culture, this one is extremely practical and not only goes into the what and why of the system but deeply into the how, showing you how to implement, track, and use this system even giving many suggestions on how you can make it specifically fit your program. Overall the hard work is done for you and from this course you get something you can use with your team immediately, you even get the customized forms for tracking wins so you don't have to spend time creating them yourself.

I've been following J.P. Nerbun on twitter as well as have had the opportunity to read his book 'Calling Up.' He has been a tremendous resource for my development as a Coach, and the Competitive Cauldron course simply adds to that. He does a great job giving you detailed background on how the Cauldron started and ultimately became what it is today. J.P. does an excellent job walking you through how the competitive Cauldron works, how to set it up, how to explain it to your team, as well as how to avoid possible issues that may arise when you first implement the program. I highly recommend the course to anyone who is looking to increase the competition level within their teams. Once again, great work J.P!

J.P. Nerbun has done an outstanding job of providing valuable insight on what the Competitive Cauldron System is in his new video. His ability to cover and breakdown the essential parts of the Competitive Cauldron System will help make your transition much easier as you implement this competitive system into your program. The Competitive Cauldron System has been an integral part of our daily practices and has been a tool that has raised the bar for our level of individual and team competitiveness. This Competitive Cauldron Video can be a game changer to help to improve your overall individual & team competitiveness, team camaraderie, and team spirit.

Great course! I started a wind chart last year with my team had some success with it. This course gives me a better understanding of why we should be tracking the way we will be tracking. It gives me a much easier way of tracking too with this awesome spreadsheet. It gives you some valuable information that can help validate why you are doing what you’re doing with your team. I would highly recommend getting this for your team.

Excellent course! J.P. provides a thorough overview of his system that’s turnkey to implement regardless of sport. We are always trying to find ways to make our practices more competitive. This system is the best I’ve seen. I can’t wait to begin using the competitive cauldron with my basketball team this season.

This is an excellent course, very informative and practical for high school and youth coaches. It has flexibility and accountability for coaches to lead their programs. The collection of data is percentage based and will enhance the decision making process that coaches value.

Excellent course on explaining the steps on how to begin to implement the CC. JP is ready to help whenever needed and is always looking to improve the tracking sheets, which will update for you even if you've already taken the course!

J.P. provides a clear and logical explanation of how to implement the competitive cauldron. Not only that but he was very willing to answer any questions that I had. I will definitely be using the Competitive Cauldron this season.

J.P. does a great job explaining the cauldron and giving relevant tips to help with implementation. He also makes himself available for questions. Very good content!

I have known about the Competitive Cauldron for a few years from listening to Anson Dorrance at UNC, but never could come up with an easy-to-use method to implement this for the club soccer and high school teams I coach. Watching Anson's sessions, there always seemed to be at least four managers in charge of tracking points, wins, etc. for the Cauldron calculations, and I do not have those resources at my disposal. Between the spreadsheet and the ideas provided in the course though, I now feel I can put this into practice with my teams. J.P.'s course is well worth the time and money!

This course provides a very in depth overview of the primary goals of The Competitive Cauldron and how to implement this for it to be most effective. JP is great at making this informative while also not dragging on. I found the course to be quick and to the point. JP also provides excellent recommendations and you can tell that a lot of time and thought has been put into this. We are very excited to use this in our program and can not wait to see how this will elevate everyone's play.

JP Nerbun is a phenomenal leader, person, friend and mentor. He has helped me on a personal level and has helped our entire program. I strongly recommend this course or any other material that JP puts out there. The course will help make practices more competitive and JP gives practical advice for implementing this into your program. Another great work from JP!

I highly recommend this. The spreadsheet is easy to use and the course does a great job of explaining how to use it as well as the "why" behind it. I look forward to using this with my teams this season!

If you want your kids to really compete at practice so they can improve their skills and knowledge, this will certainly help. Lots of great ideas to start implementing right away. I know this will be a process and I can see how effective it will be with my players.

I used this during basketball season. It help tremendously with conditioning. I did not have to yell/encourage at all. It really facilitated competition. I used it to track some other metrics which helped me identify starters and slackers. It also helped quantify how many reps of this or that the players were getting. I felt that it took some stress off me and made practice and drills more meaningful to the players.
