Opener Alex Lees, keeper Dan Hodgson and batsman Jack Leaning have all extended their contracts at Headingley until December 2015.
Lees has already made the breakthrough to the first team and scored a century against Middlesex at Lord's this season.
"It is very satisfying that we have managed to get all three players signed up on long-term deals," director of cricket Martyn Moxon told the club's website.
"They are progressing nicely into competent cricketers with bright futures at the club for many years to come.
"We have been delighted with the progress made by the lads this season. Alex (Lees) has established himself in the Championship squad and has scored some important runs including his maiden Championship century at Lord's against Middlesex.
"Dan (Hodgson) has scored some important runs for the seconds and has contributed in Twenty20 cricket this season. Jack (Leaning) is making tremendous progress for the seconds and it won't be long before he is knocking on the door of the first team."
Spinner Gurman Randhawa has not been given a new deal and he is now free to speak to other counties.
