The Yugoslav Olympic Committee (Croatian: Jugoslavenski olimpijski odbor, Jugoslavenski olimpijski komitet, Serbian: Jugoslovenski olimpijski komitet / Југословенски олимпијски комитет; Slovene: Jugoslovanski оlimpijski кomite; Macedonian: Југословенски олимписки комитет) was the non-profit organization representing athletes from former Yugoslavia states in the International Olympic Committee. The YOC organized Yugoslavia's representatives at the Summer and Winter Olympic Games.

It was established in Zagreb in 1919 (recognized by the IOC in 1920) as Jugoslavenski olimpijski odbor, before moving to Belgrade in 1927, and it took the place of the Serbian Olympic Committee in the Association of National Olympic Committees. During the dissolution of Yugoslavia, several new committees were formed.
