"The core group which also includes the 16 players who were part of the Indian contingent at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will report on Sunday, 12 September for the National Camp which will conclude on 20 October 2021," HI said in a release.

The junior core Group is currently preparing for the all-important FIH Junior Women's World Cup to be held later this year in South Africa.

"While the campaign in Tokyo ended on a disappointing note for the players as it was a case of so near yet so far from the medal, the love and support the players have received over these past few weeks has been incredible and this has motivated them to do better," Hockey India President Gyanendro Ningombam said.
