There are many referee training courses to assist you with getting certified. The requirements vary by state and what level of competition you will be reffing. ( Referee Grades )  A good place to start is to check with your local soccer club or ask a ref at the next game.

As a referee you will be responsible to enforce the “Laws of the Game” in a way that will keep the game safe, fair and fun for everyone. You should interfere with the game as little as possible and avoid making calls for questionable offenses. In order to ref competitive soccer games officials must maintain good physical conditioning to keep pace with play and maintain a good view of the action.
