Joel DosSantos – Director of Soccer

After moving from the Cape Verde Islands to Portugal at 15 to develop his soccer skills, Joel was scouted by Sporting Lisbon and played for the same renown youth soccer academy that produced Cristiano Ronaldo. He later played for Portugal’s Real Massamá and União Vilafranquense before changing direction to receive a degree in Sports Management.

After moving to the US five years ago with his wife and daughter, Joel started coaching for GPS, Total Soccer FC, and then joined the New England Revolution Academy in 2017. The balance between a player’s technical, physical, tactical and mental abilities helps to shape Joel’s coaching style.

With an extensive background as both a player and coach, Joel will be overseeing all soccer programs at Starland.

Futsal is a variant of soccer, mainly played indoors and is played between two teams of 5 players. The sport is played worldwide and is the only form of indoor soccer recognized by FIFA. The game is also played with a slightly smaller ball than soccer’s (size 4). The sport places more emphasis on ball control, passing, technique, and dribbling due to the smaller parameters of the game. Many professional soccer players played futsal when growing up. Below are some comparisons to soccer’s rules & regulations.

Futsal (Five-a-Side Soccer)

    • #4 Ball – 30% less bounce
    • 5 players
    • Unlimited “flying” substitutions (12 Players on a Team)
    • Kick-in
    • Stopped Clock
    • 20 minute halves
    • 1 timeout per half
    • Goal Clearance (throw)
    • No shoulder charges or sliding tackles
    • 4-second rule on restarts
    • No Offside Rule
    • No restrictions, but limited to 4 seconds
    • Goalkeeper cannot touch by hand a ball played back
    • One back pass to Goalkeeper
