"Australia has already qualified for the Olympics as [World] champions so we need to beat American Samoa and at least be placed second in the [Oceania Championships] playoffs," head coach Michael Whippy said.
Meanwhile, development squad members Brittany Hazelman and Leilani Saukawa have been named in the 12-member team to the Samoa Games.
"These two girls join the ten players that won the gold medal in Palau and this trip will be a great exposure and experience for them," Whippy said.
He said the two development players were selected for each position, forward and the guard.
"They're young developing players that have blended in quite well with the rest of the players," Whippy said.
Overseas-based Valerie Nainima and Mikaelar Whippy, who play in the United States of America will join the team next month.
"We've been training three times a week where the girls have a day at the court, workout at the Hyundai Gym and tracks on Saturdays," he said.
Whippy said the best team has been named and remains optimistic of a positive outing in Apia. Palau skipper Batiri Thaman and Dale Wise are tipped to lead the team to the upcoming outing.
