If he feels like his soreness could lead to injury then encouraging him to address it with the coach/trainer directly is a great place to start.
My son started high school workouts and they are extremely difficult. Each practice is four hours long and more intense than anything he’s experienced in his sport so far. He is asking to skip tomorrow’s workout because he is soo sore. Should I let him?

No, no, no! Muscle soreness, bumps and bruises are a part of any game. This is a perfect opportunity to help him understand the responsibilities he has to himself to push through the pain and fatigue and the commitment he has to his teammates.
