Players will train at the CitiPower Centre and the MCG, while sessions will also be held in regional areas to reduce the travel burden for players based in country areas.
Players will then have the opportunity to represent Vic Metro and Vic Country at the female national championships to be held in Perth in December.
"This is a key part of the players development pathway where they'll receive guidance and insight from elite coaches and professional players," Cricket Victoria's head of the female emerging players program Duncan Harrison said.
"They'll gain an increased understanding of their own game and how to prepare for professional cricket.
"The carrot of a national championships at the end of this year is a great landmark for the players to aim for and we're excited by the level of talent we'll have representing Victoria at that tournament."
From next month, the 61 players in the male squads will be put through its paces at the CitiPower Centre by a coaching group including Sheffield Shield winning coach Greg Shipperd, six-time Shield winner Cameron White and Sri Lankan international Thilan Samaraweera.
A camp, further sessions around the state and trial matches will also provide additional development opportunities for players.
