First of all you have to figure out what sport, what age, what level of what sport are you playing - because again everything changes. A good multivitamin mineral is probably something that you should think about doing. Its a nutritutional insurance policy making sure you are getting everything you need another product that would be very beneficial would be a branch of amino acid that's something you want to take prior and post workout because it can help you with repair as well - glutemene, prior, post, prior because it can be utilized as glucose and transfer to energy and can help prevent the decay of cortizol which is damaging to the muscle tissue - post for repair - creotene can be used as well that's going to be more of a off season more sport dependent but a lot of athletes can probably do that during their off season and can increase size and strength gains. An omega 3 I would recommend because athletes are working their joints and an anti inflammatory can only help out so these are the things that I would probably say are pretty good basic supplement recommendations for athletes.
