Registered athletes will receive an official Empire State Winter Games jacket when checking in. Jacket sizes are on a first-come, first-served basis. We will attempt to have a variety of sizes so everyone receives the size they need; however, apparel ordering deadlines are earlier than registration deadlines, so size quantities will be approximated.
