Andrew Amonde will captain Kenya's 12-man squad at the IRB Rugby World Cup Sevens tournament in Moscow later this week.
The squad includes seven new players and four survivors from the side that reached the World Cup semi-finals in Dubai four years ago.
The inclusion includes wing William Ambaka, one of the nominees for the IRB Sevens Player of the Year, and flanker Oscar Ouma - two stand out players in Kenya's campaign in the World Series this season, which saw them finish fifth.
"Our men are raring to go," Kenya Rugby Union (KRU) chairman Mwangi Muthee told a news conference.
"They are well prepared for the challenge that awaits them in Moscow.
"We are going there to participate, and our intention is to win the cup. We are capable of doing that.
"Kenya is not a professional team like South Africa, Australia and England. It is very interesting to see an amateur team taking on the world."
The players will travel to Moscow from a two-week training camp in England.
Kenya is in Group C alongside the 2009/10 IRB World Series champions Samoa, Philippines and Zimbabwe.
