+1 for what's already been posted. 11-12 is too early IMO for weight training, if he really wants to do more (and if it really is him, and not you, pushing for it), set up a skill pad and net in your backyard so he can practice shooting, swimming as already suggested is a good call, and just let him play random other sports with friends. Push him too hard at this age and there's a good chance you'll just take away his love for the game, encouraging him is one thing, but putting him through grueling weights and cardio at the age of 11-12 is another.
