Overall, there will be three camps between August and September in Canberra.

The camps are set to prepare the player ahead of the AFC U-16 Women’s Championship Qualifiers which will take place in Kyrgyz Republic.

Two players selected, Paige Zois (U15) and Tijan McKenna (U14), were the Players of the Tournament at the recent National Youth Championships while Holly McNamara went away with the Young Matildas to Indonesia for the AFF Women's Championships.

"I'm really excited to bring together this group of players for the first camp of the new cycle for the Junior Matildas,” said Dower.

“The selection process was highly competitive across the talent ID tournaments and it's fantastic to see that the depth and quality of female players at 13, 14 and 15 years of age has risen again.

“I'm certain the girls will come into camp today extremely excited, with a few expected nerves and want to impress to the coaching staff that they deserve a spot in the final team.”

Australia will face Chinese Taipei, host nation Kyrgyz Republic, Palestine and Indonesia in Group D as 30 teams compete for eight spots in the second round of qualifying.
