The Manhattanville Valiants is the name of the sports teams of Manhattanville College located in Purchase, New York.

The hockey team played in the ECAC West conference of the NCAA from it's founding until the school was announced as being an inaugural member of the United Collegiate Hockey Conference for the 2017-18 season when the conference was formally announced on October 4, 2016. The school was a member of the Middle Atlantic Conferences hockey conference until the 2018-19. The MAC is the school's all-sports home. The MAC is contested in the same manner as the Ivy League is run within the ECAC Hockey hockey conference. The team transferred from the MAC to the Skyline Conference for the 2019-20 season.

The Playland Ice Casino has been the home of the Manhattanville Valiants from 2002 to 2012 and from 2014 to present. The team relocated to the Terry Connors Rink in Stamford, Connecticut for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons due to the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy and subsequent repairs.

Manhattanville's men's head coach Arlen Marshall had resigned in August of 2020 to become and assistant coach with the Army Black Knights men's ice hockey team. [1] On September 10th the women's teams' head coach David Turco was named the new men's team head coach.[2]
