In sports, such as football, a player will throw the ball to a spot early, so the ball arrives as the receiver arrives.
This concept is relevant outside of sports. For example, I could send a letter to one city while you're still in another city, but you'll receive it just as you arrive. I can add more technical examples if necessary.
Is there a term for this action? I've used "quarter-backing" in the past, but I've found myself in a situation where I need to describe this concept in a professional environment.
I don't know if this is a single-word-request or phrase-request, but here's an example sentence:
I sent the email on Friday, so I could ____ it as you arrived on Monday.
It may or may not fit with this sentence syntax.
I quarter-backed the email on Friday, so you would receive it as you arrived on Monday.
Obviously this term sounds silly.
