MCBA, or the Michigan Competing Bands Association, is one of two competitive circuits in Michigan. In MCBA, bands compete with the ultimate goal of competing in MCBA State Finals. Bands are divided into four flights based on MHSAA school size. Flight arrangements change periodically to create a more even distribution of bands per flight.
For 2016, MCBA classifies each Flight as follows (number of overall high school students):
Flight I – 1,510 and higher
Flight II – 1,081 to 1,509
Flight III – 681 to 1,180
Flight IV – 680 or less
In 2013, MCBA introduced “Open Class,” a non-competitive comments-only performance flight.
