As a youth player, Yazid first came to prominence in the 1995 Lion City Cup where he stood in goal for eventual winners, the Singapore A (Under-16) squad, alongside Indra Sahdan and Ahmad Latiff Khamaruddin.
His level headed performance as a 16-year-old in the competition led to him signing his first professional contract with Sembawang Rangers in the S.League's maiden season in 1996. During his time with the Stallions, he was once famously deployed as a midfielder in a 1996 S.League match against Woodlands Wellington due to an injury crisis in the Sembawang squad.
Yazid's performance during the 2009 RHB Singapore Cup, which included a penalty save late in the game, won him the man of the match award and helped Geylang United to lift the Cup after a hard-fought 1–0 victory over Thai Premier League side Bangkok Glass in the final. The following season, Yazid appeared in the Eagles' AFC Cup matches against V-League champions, Da Nang, and Hong Kong FA Cup winners, Tai Po FC.
On 19 November 2012, it was announced that Yazid Yasin had re-joined his former club, Woodlands Wellington. He is the player with the fourth most number of appearances for the Rams at 124 appearances behind Abdelhadi Laakkad (129 appearances), Goh Tat Chuan (138 appearances) and current record holder Sazali Salleh (158 appearances).
The 34-year-old achieved a milestone on July 16 when he made an incredible 400th S.League appearance in the Rams' 5-2 victory over the Courts Young Lions at the Woodlands Stadium.
After the merger of Woodlands into Hougang United in 2015, Yazid returned to Geylang to join Geylang International FC. At 36 years old, Yazid is (at the time) S.League's oldest active player, after Aleksandar Đurić retired the previous year.
