U17 national team coach Ante Juric has named a 24 player squad for an Australian Institute of Sport camp held this week in Canberra.

The camp is part of preparations for October's AFC Under-16 Championships qualifiers, where Australia joins 20 other countries vying for entry into the 2015 championships.

The 2014 squad is vastly different from the one that competed in the 2013 AFC U16 Championships with only Adelaide United's Alex Chidiac, who made her W-League debut on the weekend, and goalkeeper Jada Mathyssen-Whyman returning for another cycle.

Chidiac and Canberra United's Grace Maher the only players currently on W-League rosters, although Princess Ibini, who starred for the Football NSW Institute in their championship winning season, has been training regularly under the guidance recently appointed Matildas coach Alen Stajcic at Sydney FC.

While NSW (including Northern and Country) dominates the squad with ten representatives, the squad affirms the work being undertaken by National Training Centres of South Australia and Victoria (each with four players).

Held in in Melaka, Malaysia, the qualification tournament sees 21 teams, 12 from West and South/Central Asia and nine from East Asia and ASEAN, divided into two zones (East and West).

Australia has been drawn in Group C alongside former U17s world champions Korea Republic, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Northern Mariana Islands.

The five nations will play each other once in a league style format with the winner of the group joining 2013 U17 World Champions Japan, DPR Korea, China and hosts Thailand in the eight nation finals.
