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 2015, MCBA classifies each Flight as follows (number of overall high school students):

Flight I – 1,704 and higher
Flight II – 1,123 to 1,703
Flight III – 680 to 1,122
Flight IV – 679 or less

In 2013, MCBA introduced “Open Class,” a non-competitive comments-only performance flight.
