Connecticut established ten districts in 1958, added an eleventh in 1959, and expanded to 12 districts in 2014. In early years, the district champions played off in a single-elimination tournament held at locations throughout the state. For a brief timespan in the late 1980s and early 1990s, two Connecticut leagues advanced to the region tournament, In 1993, the state began holding two sectional tournaments, with the winner of a playoff between the two sectional champions advancing to regional competition. Since 2015, Connecticut has advanced four teams to a double-elimination state tournament that determines the state champion.
Connecticut's champion advances to the Metro Region tournament in Bristol, Connecticut, and the Metro Region champion advances to the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania. In past years, Connecticut advanced to the Eastern Region tournament (1957-2000) or the New England Region tournament (2001-2021).
Twenty-one Connecticut leagues have advanced to the Little League World Series, including the state's most recent qualifier, Manchester Little League in 2021. Four of the state's leagues have won the Little League World Series championship. Stamford Little League and Norwalk National Little League won back-to-back titles in 1951 and 1952, while Windsor Locks Little League (1965) and Trumbull National Little League (1989) defeated international leagues in the championship game. Trumbull's victory over the Kang Tu Little League (Kao Hsiung, Taiwan) remains one of the most famous upsets in Little League World Series history.
