Thats a good question i dont know if the hand signals have ever been documented. Now the universal out sign is one hand on the head and the other pointing at the player works in both US and Europe from my experiance.Now the clean signal in US is the safe signal from baseball waving both hands waist high in front of your body.In Europe unless they went with the US siganl recently is one hand rasied to shoulder hight makeing a circular motion with your hand.
As for penelties the NXL uses yellow flag for minors red flag for majors .The PSP referees i worked collage nationals used 1 arm raised minor both arms raised major.The NPPL last i knew was the pumping of arms up and down infront of your body for a penelty call. Im sure there are more but at 6am thats all i can bring to the surface at this time

Actually, the hand gestures are well documented in the NPPL and Millenium Series rulebooks. X-ball/NXL has less use for hand gestures because of the buzzer and the colored penalty flag so gestures are not as well documented. This of course is only for ref to player/spectator communication. Sometimes you will see refs communicating amongst themselves using other gestures but I assume this thread excludes those. I'll try and dig for some pictures later.

NPPL
11.06 Referee Hand Signals. Referee hand signals will be as follows:
(1) 10 Seconds to Game Start. The Head Ref will signal 10 seconds to Game
Start by raising his right hand.
(2) Game Start. The Head Ref will signal the game start by dropping his right
hand.
(3) Eliminated. Referee will signal when a player is eliminated by holding his
right hand on top of his head and pointing his left arm at the player who is
eliminated. The Referee will then pull the eliminated player’s armband. The
Referee cannot put a player back in after calling a player eliminated with a
hand signal.*
(4) Safe. Referee will signal safe by waving both hands in front of his body.
This “safe” signal indicates that a player is considered clean of a hit and is
still an active part of the game.**
(5) One-for-One. Referee will call a player eliminated for a One-for-One using
the eliminated signal first followed by a double fist up and down movement
both arms in front of his body. Referee will then pull a player’s armband and
again signal a One-for-One. The double fist up and down movement may be
repeated as necessary for Two-for-One and Three-for-One eliminations.***
(6) Flag Hang. Referee will signal a Flag hang by placing both arms over his/her
head and holding the left wrist with the right hand.
(7) Game End and Stoppages. The Head Ref will signal the game end or game
stop by waving both hands overhead so that the wrists cross.

* Alternately, the ref may raise a hand to signal to the opposition to stop shooting while he removes the eliminated player's armband or points at the eliminated player. The particular hand being pointed and being put on the head really doesn't matter.
** "safe" should really read "clean" and is equivalent to the baseball "safe" gesture.
*** There is now a penalty flag that is thrown in addition to the double fisted motion. For clarification, the fists move alternately up and down, meaning when the left fist is up, the right fist is down.

PSP
I believe the PSP ref "out" and "clean" gestures are the same as in the NPPL.
minor penalty - ref raises one arm with fist
major penalty - ref raises two arms with fists
gross penalty - ref raises two arms crossed in an X with fists
The flag hang gesture is "hands in triangle over head"*
Games are started and stopped by a buzzer.

*divisional x-ball addendum page 4, footnote 1

NXL
The gestures for the NXL are looser and sometimes vary depending on which refs are working together. The gestures used are decided pregame. Generally, most of the signals are the same as for PSP except that the "clean" signal is a pointed index finger moved in a circle with axis perpendular to finger at approximately ref's face level as in "keep going." Also instead of an up and down fist motion a flag is simply thrown and the color of the flag describes the penalty.

Millenium Series
8. Referees hand signals
8.01 Eliminated – Referee will signal when a player is eliminated by putting one hand on his
head and pointing at the eliminated player. The referee will then pull the players
armband (if being used). The referee cannot put a player back in after calling player
eliminated with a hand signal.
8.02 Safe/Clean – A referee will signal that a player is clean of any valid hits and has not
been eliminated, by lifting a hand or a towel in the air and moving it in a circular motion*
8.03 Neutral – Referee will signal a player neutral by touching such player, shouting
“neutral” and holding the other arm above his head showing his hand to the opponents’
team in a “Stop!” gesture. The referee will then check player and make a safe or
eliminated call. Neutral calls are at the discretion of the referees, and will only be made
in extreme cases where it is difficult to check the player for hits.**
8.04 One-for-one, two-for-one or three-for-one penalty signal – A referee will first signal the
elimination of the player who committed the infraction. Then he will signal the penalty
by a double fist up and down movement with both arms in front of body of the
additional player(s), repeating the penalty signal for every additional player counted as
eliminated due to the infraction. The referee will also verbally call the penalty.

*The "clean" gesture is the same as the NXL "clean" gesture.
**The "neutral" call is no longer used in the NPPL and PSP because of the difficulty enforcing the "no advancing on neutral player" rule. In the NPPL the "stop" gesture described here would be another gesture that the player is eliminated.

to ref you really only need four signals
i use the nppl elimination with my left hand behind my head with the right arm extended pointing at the eliminated player
For clean just use the baseball safe motion
For game stop put your hands over your heads
For game start raise your hands during the 10 seconds and release them on go so the players have both a visual and audio aid
Thats really all you need to be a basic ref
