This is the Federation International de Football Association (FIFA) website. FIFA is the international governing body of soccer. On the bottom of the page, there are quick links for the Laws of the Game and Refereeing. The former includes Interpretation of the Laws of the Game and Guidelines for Referees, and the latter has Referee Teaching Material.
This is the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) web site. The “Laws of the Game” quick links include Position PapersAsk a Referee and You Make the Call.  The “Referee Development” quick links include Advice to Referees and Information for New Referees.   The “Referee Week in Review” feature is also worth looking at frequently.  Note: AYSO is a member of USSF, which is the national governing body for soccer in the USA.
