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 2018, MCBA added a fifth flight of competition. Breakdowns for the flights (for 2018) is as follows:

  • Flight I – 1,686 or greater
  • Flight II – 1,251 to 1,685
  • Flight III – 984 to 1,250
  • Flight IV – 663 to 983
  • Flight V – 662 or less

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