4th & Life

The 4th & Life program is a curriculum-based program for high school athletes focusing on what it takes to be successful on the field, in the classroom, and in the workplace. The curriculum illustrates important life lessons by using examples from Redskins players, coaches, and alumni.

Football players from area high schools participate in the program each year, culminating with player-led interactive forums at FedExField, sponsored by Coca-Cola. Curriculum cards are provided to all student-athletes that attend the Forum and feature tips about staying on the academic track, preparing early for college, and other careers in sports besides playing.
