The Edward F. McDonough Sports Complex is a state-of-the-art health, recreation, and physical education facility. This $15 million facility includes a large fieldhouse with three regulation basketball courts, an ice rink (home to many area skating organizations), fully equipped Nautilus fitness rooms and racquetball courts, an indoor track (including long jump pit), and a multi-purpose room and conference room for 30 people.

In May 2001, Senator Joseph Bruno secured funds to construct a 4,500-seat baseball stadium at Hudson Valley Community College. The $14-million Joseph L. Bruno Stadium hosts the Tri-City ValleyCats, a Houston Astros-affiliated Class A baseball team from the New York-Penn League. Hudson Valley's nationally ranked baseball team also uses the $14-million stadium, and it also serves as home to an array of community athletic events.
The Outdoor Athletic Complex was unveiled during the fall semester of 2016. The $4.5 million complex hosts the football, lacrosse, men's and women's soccer, and men's and women's track and field teams.
