Brief Answer:
could be due to dehydration

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
From your description and history it looks like your son has probably dehydration induced cracking of lips.
I would suggest
1. Plenty of fruits and liquids to keep him hydrated well.
2. Vaseline can be applied daily before he goes to skate.
3. Multivitamin supplements like.Zincovit can be helpful if it doesn't improve with above methods.
Wishing your child good health
