They open their campaign with a clash against University of Western Cape, to whom they lost on penalties in the last four in 2018.
This time coach Jabulile Baloyi wants her team to be more ruthless on attack.
“Given what happened the last time we met we need to make sure we are accurate on attack and bury the chances we create,” she said.
“If we are able to do that it will make things much easier for us as the competition progresses.”
Baloyi added that they had good continuity in the squad from last year’s outfit.
“Having said that, we don’t want to rely only on the senior players. We are playing a team sport so everyone has an important role to play in the team.”
The eight teams are divided into two pools of four and UJ are grouped with UWC, University of KwaZulu-Natal and University of Zululand. The top two teams from each pool will qualify for the semifinals.
Besides themselves, Baloyi felt that Tshwane University of Technology and UWC would be the teams to watch.
