Coaches in younger categories play an important role in shaping the future of children by instilling values such as fair play and sportsmanship. However, recent events have shown that not all coaches and parents demonstrate appropriate behavior, which can set a poor example for the children they are supposed to guide.
A basketball game between Metalac and Radničko cadets in the Interregional Basketball League ended in chaos after the coaches got into a heated argument, leading to disruptive and violent behavior among the players. The situation escalated to the point where a player was punched in the head, resulting in a minor concussion.
The unruly behavior extended to the parents as well, who also became involved in the altercation, further exacerbating the situation. As a result, both clubs now face severe penalties as a consequence of their shameful behavior during the game.
