Eight Oregon referees traveled to Phoenix to support the US Youth Soccer Far West Regional Tournament and to gain experience that can only be obtained by participating in an event of this stature.

- Every referee had the opportunity to work as a center referee at least once, with most working 2-3 games, or in Andrew Deuker’s case, he worked the middle of a game each day.
- All 8 referees had Quarterfinal assignments.
- 7 of the 8 referees had Semifinals assignments.
- 4 of the 8 referees had Finals assignments (Andrew Deuker, Jared Pletz, Ian Miller, and Bennett Savage).
*Andy Deuker was selected to attend the US Youth Soccer National Championships in South Carolina in July as an Assistant Referee. Andrew Deuker is a part of a small club of Oregon Referees that have been invited to the event (David Grbavac, Bristol Schmitz, and Ryan Abbott are the others in the last 10 years).
