Ibbotson mainly played soccer as a junior and only converted to Australian rules football at the age of 13.[1] He graduated from Corpus Christi College in 2005.

He was recruited as the number 26 draft pick in the 2005 AFL Draft from East Fremantle.

AFL career

Garrick made his debut for the Fremantle Football Club in round 11, 2007 against Richmond following some good form in the WAFL for East Fremantle.[2] Considered one of the quickest players in the Fremantle squad, he re-signed for a further two years in May 2007, before he had even made his debut.[3] He was nominated for the 2008 AFL Rising Star award after being Fremantle's best player in their Round 9 loss to Carlton at the Telstra Dome;[4] he ultimately finished fifth for the award.

Heading into the final round of the 2017 season, Ibbotson announced his retirement after 12 seasons with Fremantle.
