My son was riding Saturday night and the sportsman just stopped pulling... like it’s in neutral... Any suggestions and part directions will be greatly appreciated... thanks

Yep, drain the water out of the clutch cover and let it run in neutral for a little while to dry out... Or... replace the broken belt if it wasn't in water.
There's a red drain plug on the lower rearward part of the cover just forward of the left rear tire.

Pull the cover to inspect the belt its most likely toast.

Well, the machine is 11 or 12 years old and you apparently have a smoked belt. The clutches need removed, disassembled, cleaned, inspected and any worn parts replaced. Its just a regular maintenance item like changing oil, replacing brake pads or changing the air filter

Output hubs. Its according to the model as to how hard or expensive to repair.

What machine are we talking about?
Yes, there are rebuild kits.
You need to check parts prices first as you can often buy a good used front gearcase cheaper than the parts to fix yours.
