The Coronavirus pandemic has put a big question mark on youth sports. But it's not just the players who have been effected, just ask reed Kinsey, who makes his living as a goalie coach.

"RK Goalies is my full time job. I believe in what I do, and I believe in these kids and giving them the opportunity."

But when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, it put a temporary halt to Reed's business, which means he took a hit in the wallet.

"It was tough at times, as I was wondering about my bills. It was definitely an impact on my day to day life. I had to pay more attention to what I was doing, eating more home meals, and not going out so much with the fiance."

While the pandemic continues, the coach and his students are back on the ice. And while Reed says he never had the opportunity to have a goalie coach when he was a kid, his mind is set on working with passion, and giving back to the community.

"It's just a complete joy. It's a game that I love, and it's just a blast to be back on the ice."
