OK, first off you are on the borderline of age IMO...first work on being able to move properly both linearly (forward/backward) and laterally (side to side)...an agility ladder is a great tool here, but really don't need one to the drills.

Secondly, i assume this is for basketball...whcih means you want acceleration and quickness...therefore long distance sprints over 20 yards are really for naught.

Doing pro agility drills will help as well as getting stronger with the legs, core and upper body.

Sorry for the bland post, it is late, maybe more info tomorrow.

For pure speed, you don't want to run distances over 1km IMO. Coaches usually do sliding drills side to side between lines for speed, and in volleyball even going between line and line and slide.

lift weights.
especially squats.
if you can exert more force on the ground,
then you get more push off the ground and go further,
faster

but...

also remember to actually do sprints
even if its just doing a few 40 yrd dashs on the days you dont lift.

Because if you dont practice the mechanics, you will end up like an offensive lineman... lots of leg strength, and a 5.4 forty yard dash

Sorry, jsut saw your post and on the way out here, borderline in terms of being able to go full tilt in weight training, borderline in wanting to focus on playing basketball and training for it specifically (meaning this age and younger I would be focusing on moving properly in training, letting the speed come naturally and playing mulitple sports for injury reduction and other physical improvements).

My science teacher says that running is only good for cardio but horrible for your knees. expect not being able to jump if your going to train.
