The Yorkshire Jets were a netball team based in Yorkshire, England. They were a foundation team of the Netball Superleague, the elite-level netball league in the United Kingdom, and participated in the league from its inception in 2005-06 to 2016. The club was originally named Leeds Carnegie, though changed their name to represent their region prior to the 2012 season.

Though competitive, the club only ever reached the finals series twice in eleven years in the competition, in 2008–09 and 2015. In the latter season the Jets took home games to all part of Yorkshire, playing at Leeds, Sheffield, Huddersfield and Hull. Anna Carter was the head coach of the Jets in their most successful season (2015) and she was joined by Lauren Potter and Natalie Haythornthwaite as captain and vice-captain respectively.

Several weeks after the 2016 Netball Superleague season concluded, England Netball announced the Jets would not have their license renewed for the following season, as it looked to expand the competition to other areas of the country. Jets chairperson Mariana Pexton lamented the decision, saying it was "throwing away a huge opportunity and is a setback for netball and women's sport in the region."
