Born in Royan, Rocheteau joined the youth team at Niort in 2009 and later played for the reserve side in the Division d'Honneur before turning professional in 2013. He made his senior début on 2 August 2013, scoring the Niort goal in a 1–1 draw with Troyes, seven minutes after coming on as a substitute for Jimmy Roye.[2] Rocheteau was handed his first start four days later in the Coupe de la Ligue tie against Le Havre at the Stade René Gaillard. Despite goals from Rocheteau and débutant Florian Martin, Niort were beaten 2–3.[3] On 9 August 2013 he scored his third goal in three matches, netting a late equaliser after again coming on as a substitute in the 1–1 draw away at Tours.[4]
