What are the best drills or exercises for basketball strength training?

I am a new coach to kids.

First have them wear ankle weights during conditioning periods in practice. Then work on upper body strength with medicine balls and pull ups/chin ups.

From my experience coaching kids from 7-12 years old, I would say jogging/sprinting for endurance, push-ups, ball passing drills, high-knees to lateral movement to provide overall workout which is fun.

I would say more flexible strength training and muscle endurance like running plus a lot of leg work like squats and calf lifts.

A good drill for kids to do is dribbling up and down the court with two balls, one for each hand.This really helps with dribbling skills.
