Of course, this comes from a goalie who's son also plays goal, but even other parents make similar comments.
As most have said, cost is a huge factor. Some ice rinks do have smaller nets but most are just to give a target and not meant to have a kid stand in front of. I have been to a lot of ice rinks and cannot ever remember seeing a smaller net that was still designed to have a goalie play in. All are full size or tiny target nets.
