Forty players (12 defensemen, 24 forwards and four goaltenders) have been selected, representing each of the five Female Midget AAA teams.

Players were selected based on their on-ice and off-ice performance by the All Star Game selection committee.

During the first and second intermission of the game a skills competition will be held for all the participating All Star players. The skill competition will include: fastest skater and a breakaway challenge.
