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 2013, MCBA classifies each Flight as follows (number of overall high school students):
Flight I – 1,696 and higher
Flight II – 1,167 to 1,695
Flight III – 729 to 1,166
Flight IV – 728 or less
New for 2013: MCBA Open Class, a non-competitive comments-only performance flight.
