Drafted from South Australian club Norwood, Jared Crouch quickly developed into a fine defender, especially against dangerous small forwards. He quickly became a key component of the midfield, and after breaking into the senior team in 1998 (and earning an AFL Rising Star nomination in his debut season) he did not miss a game until round 13 of 2006, achieving a consecutive games tally of 194 – an AFL record for consecutive matches played from debut.  During these first six seasons, he also displayed remarkable consistency, finishing in the top ten of the Club Best and Fairest each year. He was an integral part of the 2005 Premiership Team, and was presented with the Paul Roos Award for Best Player in the Finals Series in the Premiership season. Injury saw him miss much of 2006 and 2007, but he regained fitness and form throughout the latter stages of his career, and remained a great contributor to the senior team until his retirement at the close of the 2009 season.
