Instead of starting the year off with something you want to eliminate from your daily life, you can add something to it with the help of the parks and recreational departments in Oro Valley and Marana.

Starting mid-January, people can learn to fish the Arizona waters through a hands-on instructive class held in the Recreation Room at Town Hall. This advanced bass fishing class, which is for all ages, teaches everything from choosing the correct lure to knots and rigging. The class runs from Jan. 12 to Feb 2.

Or if fishing isn’t for you, in Marana you can join a softball team. Right now, Marana is accepting applications from teams for both men and coed recreational softball teams and competitive teams. Games are held every weeknight.

Registration for a team is $250; the league lasts nine weeks. Call for late registration availability.

Also offered by the parks and recreational departments are groups and classes for more leisurely activities, such as playing card games or learning how better to use computers. Kids can enroll in acting or magic classes in Marana; for those families expecting kids, there are childbirth education classes offered in Oro Valley.

For those wanting to shed a few pounds and get into shape for 2011, classes and clubs are taking new members now for hiking, tennis, yoga, ballroom dancing, and even Zumba classes.

Some of the activities are free while others have an entry fee.

For more information on activities taking place in Oro Valley, go to www.orovalleyaz.gov, and you can find the Parks and Recreation information under the “Town Government” tab.

For activities taking place in Marana, got to www.marana.com. Under the “Departments” tab, you will find its Parks and Recreation Web site.
