The team was flagged off by the National Council of Sports (NCS) assistant general secretary David Katende at Lugogo yesterday.
NCS believes the youngsters have also embarked on a journey to move up the ladder to the national team.
Rachael Ntono, captain of the team bound for Rwanda, said before departure that the players will live up to the challenge.
“Everyone is comfortable in the department she plays in,” Ntono stated.
“We are positive that we will emulate our male counterparts who won all their games during a trip to the same country last year.”
The team will look to all-rounder Ntono, Prico Nakitende and Damalie Busingye for inspiration.

They were in the U-19 national team that won the All Africa girls tournament in Dar es Salaam last year.
