The coaches in younger categories play a crucial role in the development and upbringing of children, as they instill values such as fair play and sportsmanship. However, this is not always the case, as some coaches and parents fail to demonstrate appropriate behavior, setting a poor example for the children they are supposed to guide.
A recent basketball game between Metalac and Radničko cadets in the Interregional Basketball League resulted in chaos after the coaches got into a heated argument. The disruptive and violent behavior among the players escalated to the point where one player was punched in the head, resulting in a minor concussion.
The unruly behavior extended to the parents, who also became involved in the altercation, further exacerbating the situation. Ultimately, the match had to be stopped, and the police had to intervene, launching an investigation into the incident. Both clubs now face severe penalties as a result of their shameful actions during the game.
