The Yorkshire Amateur Association Football League is an amateur competitive football league based in England, consisting primarily (but not exclusively) of old boys clubs for local schools, some of whom field as many as five teams in the league.

The league has a total of eight divisions, the highest of which is the Yorkshire Amateur League Premier Division, which sits at level 14 of the English football league system. It is a feeder to the West Riding County Amateur League. Although not specifically designated as reserve divisions, the league's lower divisions contain mostly the reserve teams of clubs in the higher divisions. Unlike most leagues, this league does not necessarily prohibit two teams from the same club competing in the same division.

In the 2008–09 season, Gildersome Spurs Old Boys made the record books by winning all four of the competitions they entered, including Senior B, The Terry Marflitt Trophy, The Yorkshire Old Boys Shield, and The Wheatley District Cup.
