The Gilette National Youth League was a British rugby league tournament at under-18 level. It was previously known as the Halifax Home Insurance National Youth League.

It is the second tier competition at under-18s. The top level is the Gilette Academy Championship, which in 2009 consists of the under-18 team of the twelve English based Super League teams and also of Championship clubs Widnes Vikings and Sheffield Eagles.

It was administered by the British Amateur Rugby League Association. In 2011 it switched to summer as the Conference Youth League. After the 2012 season the league was abolished and teams returned to local leagues.
