The only problem is that I can't think of much apart from maybe jumping on and off of a swiss ball or one legged squats or something.

Does anyone have any exercises or a program preferably for this kind of thing? It'd be awesome to start next season with that extra edge.

Yeah, I do my whole workout on a balance board, it is a "Indo Board", so rad. It is the one with the roller, not the cushion.

Work on that core! As mentioned work up to doing your whole workout on a balance board. You know you have a balanced core if you can balance with your eyes closed. While it seems easy a huge portion of your balance is learned from sight. It is actually amazing how quickly 99% of the population stumbles and sways as soon as they close their eyes. My favorite core builder is planks. Squats and lunges help work your legs too. For my winter conditioning I like to focus a lot on biking when I have time. A lot of people think it's queer to do yoga but I'll be the one laughing when the can't balance for shit on even a box. Just look up core workouts and yoga exercises online. There are a lot of step by step even on YouTube.
