The Soul City Sirens (SCS) is a roller derby league based in Augusta, Georgia. Founded in 2008, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in January 2008 by Jessica Thompson, a local librarian, and played its first bout in January 2009.[1] By 2013, it was averaging 350 fans at each bout, and had developed a particular rivalry with the Richland County Regulators.[2]

Soul City was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in July 2011,[3] and in March 2013, it became a full member of the WFTDA.[4]
