When I play I'm a big talker on the field, but every time I play, I loose my voice. Any way I can try to prevent this?

when you yell you tend to over vibrate your vocal chords, which causes them to bruise and tare... that vibration also causes the tissue in the back of your throat to become irritated... thats why you get a horse voice and a sore throat for a couple days after a game... only way to avoid this is to control your yelling

Use your diaphragm more, try to tell from the center of your chest and not from your vocal cord. This will allow you t obe louder, and will prevent you from over exerting your voice.

If you have ever taken a singing lesson this is one of the first things they teach you.

You want to be projecting from the bottom of you diaphragm. A good way to practice this would be to sing a deep 'AHHHHH' for a few seconds. Make sure to breath deeply and fill your lower thorax with air.

yea what i learned in communicating is not to yell but to talk loud

Reason you tend to yell is people playing paintball have yet to learn how to listen. So by yelling you think they would hear you better.

So try to talk loudly and using names help But if the person isn't listening all the yelling does pretty much nothing

Run to teammate, whisper erotically into their ear, rinse and repeat.

Don't forget to avoid getting lit up.

You can't love yourself too much, until you start chafing, them's the rules.

Or just make sure you use protection.


I used to have this problem too (as a fan at football games) yelling from your diaphragm really really helps

i find that yelling from inside your chest (if you know what i mean) instead of really through your throat (i'm not sure how to explain this)

I split my vote, half for etekgirl's body, half for her mind, because I respect a woman's mind just as much as her cans.

it's going to come with trust and rapport with teammates

The longer you play with them, the more you start trusting each other, and the more you start to "talk" instead of "yell"

When you first start playing with teammates, you yell alot because no one listens to each other, and no one communicates properly. There is no trust, no chemistry, no rapport, no history as a team.

6+ months of playing, play a season or two together, you'll stop yelling at each other, and start talking to each other on the field.


It takes several months, of nonstop playing, getting your ass kicked, tons of arguing and tons of games won and lost, to build the kind of chemistry needed to stop yelling and start talking

Look at pro teams, they read body language. They also talk, mostly.

With the exception of Nicky Cuba.

If you really need to yell, Don't use your throat, use your diaphram (ATTEN-HUTT!) you can be much louder and you won't lose your voice.

Fricking Rah lol. It's something you learn at boot camp because 4 weeks of sounding off all the time, you learn something about being loud.

I've never heard of someone losing their voice because of yelling, Weird.

If you want to be loud, the noise should be more from in your gut (chest voice) then your throat.

Not only will it ease the pain, but people will be able to understand you better.

I'm a singer btw.

What Mike said, as well as... try to yell with a lower voice; you should feel it in the center of your chest rather than the back of your throat.

This. A funny memory i have is my class practice being loud. It was like watching a gang of orangutans in uniform practicing mating calls without breaking their vocal cords. But it works really well, and has saved my voice over the years as a coach.
