Bossekop Ungdomslag is a Norwegian sports club from Bossekop, Alta, Finnmark. It has sections for association football, team handball, speed skating and Nordic skiing.

It was founded on 25 July 1912 as a youth association. A sports team within Bossekop UL (cf IL i BUL) was founded in 1958. The club practiced athletics from 1960, speed skating from 1961, football from 1967, handball from 1973, skiing since 1980 and biathlon since 1991.[2] Some sections later became defunct.

The men's football team plays in the 2. Divisjon, the third tier of Norwegian football, after promotion in 2012. The team also played in the Second Division in 2000, 2003 and 2009. The two latter promotions were achieved through playoffs in 2002 and 2008; the club also lost one playoff (to Lyngen/Karnes IL) in 2004. The club has sent players to the Sápmi football team.

The club has had internationally known speed skaters, including Asle T. Johansen and Jarle Pedersen.[2]
